and 'Breaking Bad'.
Like 'The Wire' this is a complex, Dickensian study of human nature,
not afraid of asking big questions, and meticulously plotted like a
great novel, so that each episode is a chapter in a much larger whole.
Just as 'The Wire' used the overly familiar cliché' world of the cop
show to jump off from and shatter our preconceptions, and 'Battlestar
Galactica' uses the sci-fi series, and the idea of human versus robot
wars the same way.
This is thinking person's sci fi, in the tradition of Arthur C. Clarke,
or Isaac Asimov. It's about why we are how we are, what it means to be
a human being, morality under constant pressure in times of war,
fathers and sons, impossible loves, metaphors for modern and recent
politics and real world situations.
My wife, far from a sci-fi fan was hooked after 3 episodes, and we tore
through 5 years of shows in just a few days. It's that addicting.
The acting is all at least quite good, and some cast members are
remarkable, creating characters full of depth, complexity and
contradiction. The writing is terrific, allowing the characters to
change and grow, but always in ways that make sense, creating seemingly
inexplicable conundrums, only to find surprising, sometimes shocking -
but ultimately logical and satisfying - ways to explain where they've
taken us. The special effects are generally very impressive for TV,
even if they're not really why you watch this show.
It also has some of the most tense episodes of television I've ever
seen, and some of the season enders left me completely wrung out and
blown away.Read more ›
My one major complaint that hopefully will be rectified with future releases is that this was not done with more episodes. As reported by other fans, "Deadlock" had a much more elaborate subplot with Baltar that was cruelly cut down; "Blood on the Scales" had 40 minutes cut out of it. All this tends to weaken the drama, as even bits of dialogue are omitted from the aired versions. However, recutting episodes with new music and sound mixing costs quite a bit, so the producers may have wanted to hold off more extended versions for future releases, which we'll hopefully get for not only the remainder episodes of 4.5, but also 4.0 and much of Season 3's action-oriented episodes.
In any case, despite its lesser political exploration, simply not enough story moments for Lee Adama and many lesser characters, and far too much Starbuck, Season 4.5 is still a great and emotionally satisfying conclusion, especially the finale, to the most politically insightful show in the history of American pop culture.
What a shame! One of the most promising space operas of recent years lost its way and just fizzled out rather then ending with a bang.
Based on the old 1978 series it is an updated drama that you will watch more than
once. Nice twist at the end compared to the original.
